Little People Heckmondwike is a purpose-built nursery for babies and children up to school age. The spacious yet homely nursery is set on one level which means many of the rooms have direct access to the outdoor play area, which is separated into different areas for each age group. With free flow access to the outdoor area, children are able to go outside as and when they choose and staff simply move with them.

The nursery boasts an extensive reception area with a library area, which staff make good use of throughout the day with small groups of children. Parents are welcome to spend time in the library with their children when they collect them and can take books home to read together with their child.

Little People Heckmondwike follows the Early Years Framework and recognises that every child is unique and will therefore develop at their own pace. As such, the nursery provides a nurturing yet suitably challenging environment to encourage children to reach their full potential.

Reviews

9.1 Little People Heckmondwike has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.135)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Little People Heckmondwike is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little People Heckmondwike in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.75 for Little People Heckmondwike is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.75

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little People Heckmondwike is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.385

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Little People Heckmondwike

  • Mother of Child

I wanted a nursery I could trust to look after my child when I was at work and this nursery was the one!! All the staff are friendly and approachable.
My son loves coming to the nursery and seeing his friends. The staff are happy, friendly, professional and approachable.
The staff always keep me up dated with how my son is developing with newsletters or with a parents evening and tapestry (which I like because I can add photos of the things we do together at home) My son has a strong relationship with all the staff in the building. I can't fault Little People Nurseries in Heckmondwike at all!
The most important thing is, that I know my child is safe and taken care of.

My son has attended this nursery for 6 months since he was 9months old and he absolutely loves it. He comes home and has used every change of clothes because he has done so many fun things and got covered in all kinds of fun, interactive things.
They play outside and do many different kinds of messy play, he draws and bakes and always has things to bring home.
The girls who look after him are great, they keep me informed on everything he does and act upon feedback we give them.
We love the app they use to show his development and activities he's been doing.
I would definitely recommend this nursery.

My son has really come on whilst coming to Little People. Particularly since they took over.
He has grown in confidence, and they encourage him to engage with other children which he has done.
I also like the foundation website where we can see what he's done and also that we can upload activities he has done at home.

Both of our children attend Little People Heckmondwike. Our daughter is in the School Room and loves it. She always has stories to tell about what she has been doing. We are very happy with her progress and that is down to the excellent staff and great activities they provide. Our son goes to breakfast and afterschool club at the nursery which is fairly priced with great staff. It has a calm social atmosphere perfect for unwinding after school. We would definitely recommend it to other parents in the area.

In Heckmondwike, my daughter has grown so much since she started over a year ago and there is not one minute I look back at the nursery I put her in with regret. All the staff in the nursery and at head office are so nice and child-friendly. They put every child first and have a bond with them all. They are flexible to your needs as a parent and I feel that if there is ever an issue in or outside of nursery, the staff will always listen and take into account everything that has been said. I always recommend this nursery to friends and family and will be devasted when my daughter moves on to school.
